How can Finance help address the challenges of our global society?
September 29 2016 saw HEC Paris’ Society & Organizations Center (SnO) and HEC Alumni organize “Finance4Good”, a daylong conference on the ever-evolving relationship between the world of finance and society. Following up on last year’s successful Climate for Change conference, this second annual gathering saw Michel Camdessus, Knut Norheim Kjaer, Arunma Oteh, Bertrand Badre and other major speakers discuss key global issues.
